John received his Associate of Applied Science Degree in Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration from Coyne American Institute. He was employed as a Maintenance Supervisor for several apartment buildings and a member of United Food & Commercial Workers Union. John's family and friends were the most important people in his life and he loved nothing more than spending time with them. He was the jokester of the family and would do anything to make people laugh and enjoyed sharing stories. John was kindhearted and seldom had much but when he did, he would gladly share it with everyone. His hobbies included drawing, making word problems for people and playing bingo! John also volunteered at PADS and Life Christian Church helping the homeless. A Celebration of John's life is being planned for Saturday, April 10, 2021. Unfortunately, due to Covid Restrictions, the service is limited to fifty people and will be by invitation only.
